Nigeria Will Compete With Other Countries Digitally – Dr. Bosun TijaniAugust 22, 2023
The Minister of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy, Dr Bosun Tijani, has said that Nigeria will compete with other countries digitally not just other sectors.
Mr Tijanni, speaking with the Heads of Agencies and other stakeholders under the Ministry on Monday in Abuja, urged them to kick the ground running.
He pledged to come up with policies and regulations that can protect Nigerians from devices that contradict some emerging technologies and transform the industry.
Mr Tijanni said: “This is at the same time that the policy opens up opportunity for more people to actually build us into prosperity.”
According to him, he would build on the gains recorded so far in the ministry through effective collaboration with key stakeholders in the industry.
The minister added: “I think it is always good to also take stock as well. You cannot improve what you do not know.
“It is impossible for us to move forward. If you do not assess what we have accomplished.
“The best way to make it effective is to use technology that connect our citizens to the services they want to use in a dignified way.
“Our goal is not to come up with policies from the public sector, whether it is from this ministry or not, that will put people in pain before they can access government services.”
Mr Tijanni also said that the ministry was opened to collaboration with other countries, adding that there is no country that can become strong technically in isolation.
